I’ve been sitting here in a house that has been more loved than usual this week. It’s been re-arranged; dusted; had the ceilings and top of the door and window moldings swept; the downstairs bathroom has been completely bleached from top to bottom and a new shower curtain liner installed, the kitchen has been scrubbed and the floor cleaned with our newly purchased mop with the scrub brush on one side.
Home baked goodness has been reinvented in the kitchen as well. We’ve had chili verde with homemade corn chips; 5 bean & beef soup with corn bread, hearty beef stew and home-baked apple pie, baked and spicy chicken tenders with garlic mashed sweet potatoes.
Oh the goodness and comforts of fall! Love it! I’m feeling right at home in it…and it feels oh so good. 🙂
This morning my hubby and I indulged in our “growing more into a Saturday morning tradition each weekend” outing: we got right up out of bed and threw on some clothes and sort of put ourselves together as best we could for public viewing through the car windows, lol, and headed out to Starbucks for a latte and scone, and then we drove wherever our noses led us.
Sometimes it’s to the country where sweet breezes waft through the trees and undergrowth. Today we headed to the north of town where the Puget Sound is within view each direction and the houses are grand and take you back a century just to view them in their shady, nooky type yards and surrounding manicured foliage. Makes you just want to have all the money needed in your back pocket to just pick the house you love the most and plunk down the cash and move in that very day. *sigh*
But now…back in our own loved little-big home, with its swept ceilings, familiar corners, and candles burning brightly with fall scents permeating each room…it’s all good. 🙂
Now to turn my nose to this basket of yarnie items currently perched next to me on my cozy couch… maybe I’ll actually be able to complete the project contained in its depths this weekend. Another item able to be checked off the to-do list… life would go from good to simply grand!
